Do spirit photographs of ogbanje children or malevolent spirit children exist? I'm thinking of the plethora of spirit photographs from the turn of the 20th century that depicted deceased persons (from the spiritualist movement) -- do similar types of photos of ogbanje or spirit children in African culture exist? If so, where?

You are aware those spirit photographs from the early 1900s were faked, right? And rather badly, by all modern standards, though at the time the audience wasn't that sophisticated about photography.

Well, yes. I'm looking for that type of photography, if it exists, in the spirit child genre.
